Smoking

If you´re a smoker - even social one - quit.
Smoking is linked to reproductive health issues for men and women. It´s thought that smoking harms egg quality in women, effectively ageing eggs. It also interferes with female hormone levels, which can lead to irregular cycles and early menopause.


Smoking raises miscarriage risk. It robs us of vital nutrients needed to support fertility too and increases toxic metals especially cadmium. Women who smoke during pregnancy are passing on all those nasty chemicals via the placenta. Smoking affects erectile function and sperm quality and quantity. Just quit smoking. Please. Women and men. And vaping is not a viable alternative. It´s a relatively new thing. But some early studies show it´s just as dangerous as smoking. Quit. There is plenty of help to quit through conventional health practitioners and private therapists.
